Hello Stampers! My upline, Jeri, recently moved away to Wisconsin. She doesn't have any local team members to stamp or swap with, so she had asked if she could swap with my team. We said sure because the more cards the better right??? So every month Jeri mails me her swap cards, we swap them, and then I send them back to her. Periodically she will send me a thank you card. I love receiving these cards because she does beautiful work on her stamping! Here is the latest card that she sent me:
Hello Stampers! My team scheduled a swap at our team meeting and the theme was anything from the new catalogs, Occasions catalog or Sale-a-bration brochure. Unfortunately, we weren't able to have our meeting because of an ice storm! So we held on to our swaps and we just held a double swap at this month's meeting, which was yesterday. So, today I wanted to share with you the swaps I received from my team from the January swap!
This card was made by Laura. She used the Falling for You stamp set.

Hello Stampers! Did you read the title to this post? It sounds like I'm going to be taking a vacation from stamping doesn't it? Well, no way!!! I love to stamp and I love it when I can stamp every day! Who could possibly want to take a vacation from it? Not me!
Any way, Stamping Vacation is where I was this last weekend! A couple of demonstrators (Julie Davison and Meg Loven) put on this fabulous stamping day every year in Champaign, Illinois every year and I was lucky enough to be able to attend this year again. I went to it a couple of years ago and loved it and so wanted to go again! It is a day long event filled with stamping, demonstrations, business tips, etc.
Want to see some pictures?
It was a great day! Come back tomorrow and I'll show you my swap cards that I received!
Hello Stampers! I recenty needed to make some thank you cards, and couldn't come up with any ideas! So as I was looking through Facebook, I came across a card that a friend of mine, Robin Armbrecht, had made.
I loved it, so I had to CASE it! I changed the colors and sentiment and came up with this beauty!
This card uses the Work of Art stamp set in some of the new In-colors. The top splotch and the heart are stamped in Peakaboo Peach. The long swish is in Dapper Denim. The bottom splotch is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the thank you is from the Tin of Cards stamp set and stamped in Black.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello Stampers! It's getting to be that time of year when there will be lots of red, white & blue and patriotic decorations! The ladies decided that that was the theme they wanted for this month's swap! So we were to make any type of card that we wanted as long as it was red, white & blue! Here is what we all came up with:
Now that was a bunch of patriotic cards!! Love them!
